Summer Fun Crop

I've been away from my blog for a few weeks, again, because I have been busy planning a crop for our local scrapbook group.  I have one each January and July. 
I have a few pictures to share from the event.  I wish I had taken more.

These 2 are shots of the croppers.

This is a shot of one of the vendors, ScrapbooksNSmiles.

This is the prize table.

We had a great time chatting, shopping, eating, and oh yeah, scrapbooking or card making.  We had a potluck so everyone brought something and all the food was so yummy! 
Ten of of us participated in a card swap.  All the cards we beautiful.  We'll have to do this again next time.  Below is mine.  Very simple :)

I always make a little something for the vendors and I did remember to take a picture of them at home, but not at the crop with each of them. 

These are a 4 inch canvas that I got at AC Moore, covered with vintage sheet music, and added trim around the edge.  The flowers are Prima, which I could only find in orange and green, so I used Maya Mist to spray the purple and red ones and added an spritz of a metallic. Then I add a little butterfly.

TESC 118

Here is my card for the sketch at Taylored Expressions.

In my quest to use up my older papers, I pulled out this set from Crate Paper.  The purple paper, the patterned paper, the green circle and the wavy strip (which I colored with a copic marker) are from them.  The scalloped strips punched and embossed with a punch from EK Success.  They are cut from white Bazzill which I also colored with copic markers as I did for the flower from Prima too.  The stamped sentiment is from Paper Trey Ink.
